About Solar Energy
Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.
Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable resource source available, and the United States has some of the richest solar resources worldwide. Modern innovation can harness this energy for a variety of usages, consisting of producing electricity, supplying light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial usage.
Solar power makes it possible for resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce or even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, property electricity costs have increased by approximately three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Several research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are crucial parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).
What are the various payment options?
We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.
- Low, fixed payments each month
- System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
- Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal
Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
- We own the solar panel system

Solar Panels, Electronics, Gear, Gadgets For My Birthday?
So I'M Trying To Figure Out What To Ask For My Birthday Because Its One Of The Few Times I Can Get Stuff For No Reason, Like Stuff I Don'T Normally Go To The Store To Buy. (I Dont Go To The Store To Get Much At All Anyway).
Anyway, I'M Interested In Solar Panels And Led And Electronics And I Was Wondering If There Is Anything Not Over Expensive That Would Be Cool. Some Things I'M Interested In:
Solar, Wind, Water Energy
Gadgets (Multitools, Swiss Army Knives)
Making Stuff (Duct Tape Wallets, Stuff Out Of Altoids Containers)
Basically Technology And Outdoors-Gear Stuff
Oh And Im 16 Turnin 17 Male.
You can probably start in a solar, with an offline/backup system for $200 or less, which kan keep your small electronics powered. The system would be a 10 to 20W panel, charge controller, 18Ah battey, maybe a 150W inverter. You can get the battery/inverter in the form of a totable battery pack.
I have a bit larger system built for around $200, using on sale pieces from a local outfit, with a 20W panel, charge controller, battery (36 Ah AGM), hookups, and a 400W inverter I got years ago, on sale. I use it to run lights in a barna half hour or so a day.
How Science Developed The Solar Energy?..10Points.........?
How Science Has Contributed To Its Development As Solar Energy To Be Used In Our Societies??..Please Answer...10Points To The Best One...
Scientists of the Commission-financed project FULLSPECTRUM have developed photovoltaic (PV) multi-junction (MJ) solar cells which are able to convert 39.7% of the energy of sun light into electricity. This is the highest percentage ever reached in Europe, according to researchers after their final workshop today in El Escorial, Spain.
The main barrier to large-scale deployment of PV systems is the high production cost of electricity, due to the significant capital investment costs. Research is engaged to reduce manufacturing costs and to raise the efficiency of the cells. Today conventional PV cells made of silicon are converting only a fraction of the solar light spectrum around 17%.
FULLSPECTRUM's multi-junction solar cells are able to catch more sun light energy due to their composition of different materials, including gallium, phosphorus, indium and germanium. These multi-junction solar cells are expensive and have only been used for applications in space. However, the cost can be considerably reduced by arranging them in special panels which include lenses that focus a large amount of solar energy onto the cells. These concentrators can reach far above 1000 times the natural solar power flux and have also been the object of the project research.
FULLSPECTRUM is an integrated project involving 19 European public and industrial research centres from seven EU Member States, as well as Russia and Switzerland. It is coordinated by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Instituto de Energía Solar and started in November 2003 with an overall budget of € 14,7 Million of with the European Commission financed € 8.4 Million.
The European Commission has spent more than € 105 Million in research on photovoltaic energy since the start of Framework Programme 6 in 2002. Many of the projects are trying to get production costs of silicon solar cells down.
Energy research is constituent of the European Union Energy and Climate Package. One of its ambitious targets for 2020 is to increase by up to 20% the level of renewable energy in the EU's overall final energy consumption. To reach this goal the European Commission started the Strategic Energy Technology (SET)-Plan.
The Solar Europe Industrial Initiative as part of the SET-Plan has recently elevated its target for the participation of photovoltaics in the European electricity demand by 2020 from 3% to 12%. This can be translated into installing from 350 up to 400 GW P (Gigawatt of peak capacity) in photovoltaics, corresponding to an average growth of ~40% per year from today's situation.
Back in 2006, the total installed capacity of PV systems in the EU was 3,4 GW P , representing approximately 0,5% of the total EU electrical capacity. The electricity generated by PV was approximately 2,5 TWh (Terawatthour), or 0,1% of the demand. The annual installations of PV systems in 2006 in the EU reached 1250 Megawatt.
In The Future, Will The Use Of Electricity Be Nearly Gone? Will The New Source Energy Be Free?
Ovens, Water Heaters, Tv'S, Computers, Phones And All Electronics Require Electricity. In The Future, Ovens Won'T Use Electricity; Instead, They Will Use Other Abundant Sources Of Energy. The Energy Might Be At No Cost.
Will The Source Of Energy Be Free Unlike Electricity From Pg&E? If Not, Then Why?
I'm sorry to sound condescending, but I'm not sure you understand electricity. Electricity is a form of energy. What I think you're trying to ask is whether there will be a new way to generate electricity. The answer is probably yes.
We already have and use many ways to generate energy. Some newer examples are nuclear, hydroelectric, wind, and solar energy. They all generate electricity, and the only difference in the electricity they produce is the amount that can be made.
To answer your question, I predict that we are headed towards a cheaper, environmentally friendlier set of ways to get our electricity. Already, solar panels in houses and small ways to generate and even save one's own electricity are in use in some houses. Some homes actually get paychecks from energy companies that they are connected to via grid, because they are making more electricity than they need, and the runoff goes into the energy grid. In the future, technologies will probably make this more common and easy. It may not be totally free, but it will be overall better.
Hope this helps.
What Info Do I Need To Find Out How Long It Will Take For A Solar Panel To Recharge A Battery?
I Know The Battery And The Panel Are Both 12-Volt, The Panel Is 60-Watt, And I Think The Battery Is 500-Amps. I Know There Is A 500 After The Word Amp, But The Label Is Torn Before, So I Do Not Know If It Is 500 Amps, Or 500 Micro-Amps. (Is There A 500 Micro-Amps?)
What Info Do I Need?
Battery could be 500 amp-hours, but that is a very large battery. A large auto battery is about 70–100 amp-hours. Or the 500 amps could be a max current rating, and have nothing to do with capacity.
How big is it physically? If it is ordinary car battery size, I'd say it is 70 amp hours.
If it really is 500 amp-hours, and the panel delivers 60W / 15v = 4 amps (it takes 15 volts to charge a 12 volt lead-acid battery), then:
500 amp-hours / 4 amps = 125 hours to charge it. (70 amp-hrs, this would be 18 hours) But at that slow a rate, barely a trickle charge, it could take significantly longer than the 125 hours. Be sure you have a good 5 amp diode between the array and the battery so that the battery doesn't discharge through the solar array when the sun goes down.
Note that, as mentioned above, the array has to deliver 15 volts plus the diode drop, say 16 volts, before the battery charges at all. You may get this only with a very bright sun.
Pool Heater: Heat Pump Vs. Solar Panels?
Please Provide Advice As To What Would Make Sense To Heat An Outdoor Pool In Florida. I Don'T Want To Use Gas - Too Expensive. What Is Cheaper To Use On A Monthly Basis, Solar Or A Heat Pump? What Keeps A Pool Heated For More Time? Please Provide Any And All Advice. Thanks!
It's a catch 22. Solar is much more expensive to install and looks crappy on your roof. Make sure your orientation to the sun is correct. Heat pump will cause less aggrivation to install but might require more service in the long run. On a monthly basis solar would be less.
